Ladies and Gentlemen, it brings me great pleasure to announce
the newest member of
: Anton Van Oosbree!
Anton was born and raised in Oakland, California, and moved
to Portland, Oregon to study German and Music. It was in the
Pacific Northwest that he came into his musical own and discovered
a love of parallel thirds. He composes and performs material in the
country, folk, metal, electronic music and soundtrack genres. He
has performed across the country with Chervona, Eric John Kaiser
and 3 Leg Torso. Now, he's preparing to join us in the madness of
recording, touring, and any other mad plots we might devise!
His influences include, but are not limited to: the prose,
poetry and plays of Goethe; Hesse and Hugo; the symphonies of
Reich, Beethoven and Brahms; the films of Herzog, Lang and Allen;
the paintings and prints of Lichtenstein, with whom he shares a
birthday; von Stuck and Marc; and the games of Miyamoto and Newell.
